We arrived in Munising late Saturday afternoon. I had read that Falling Rock had music talent on Saturday nights and so we headed over there. Sure enough, a local duo, the J Birds were performing. It was such a fun evening. A basket is left out so you can donate whatever you wish for the entertainment. The staff was very... More

Falling Rock Cafe & Book Store is also an art store. We ate lunch there and it was excellent. Then, enjoyed an ice cream cone. Perfect! They service gluten free too. It's a great choice!

We have been traveling through Munising on way to other places for years but never noticed this delightful little cafe and book store. It reminds us of a very similar cafe in Fairfield IA called Revelations. It has good food (also gluten free items available) and a nice room of books on book shelves all around the room, eclectic table... More

What a great little unique local café! Needed something quick for our group before kayaking and we got some amazing homemade breakfast at fantastic prices! We really expected that this place was going to be expensive but it wasn’t at all. The breakfast sandwich croissant with egg, cheese and bacon was my favorite and was much, much larger than I...

Where to start... We stayed in Munising overnight to get away and relax. Not much is happening in this beautiful little town before the season opens. This includes finding open restaurants. However, Falling Rock Cafe is open and we decided to pop in for a light dinner. What a truly delightful experience. Homemade soups, yum! Roast beef sandwich on swirl... More

Had some business to do in Munising so decided to have lunch. We had a very nice lunch at Falling Rock. My wife had butternut squash soup and a sandwich. She said the butternut squash soup was one of the best she's had. Her sandwich was good and came with humus which was very good. I had the breakfast sandwich... More

There aren't many restaurant choices in Munising MI, but we hit the jackpot on this one. We picked up soup and sandwiches following a ski outing and ended up eating at the Falling Rock twice. The hammy sammy was a delicious grilled ham/cheese with a variety of fixings-we both loved it for $8. The tortilla soup was to-die-for delicious costing... More
